I think it was FatHead and I who saw this band open for I know not who (it was a long time ago). And they were without a doubt the most singular band I’ve ever seen. By the third song they had dudes yelling “fuck you” at them from the crowd. I guess I just don’t get it. We loved them.
Oh, I think they were opening for Malkmus. Maybe Dino jr.
Hey there whoever is reading this, it’s Courtney and I have recently acquired a handheld personal wireless device so I’m going to have Gothman (or whomever) put up anything cool that I run across in my daily wanderings about.
We are going to put up a new website (which is currently under construction) and it will be far simpler to navigate, so for now he will just stick it in the “news” section.
Okay. Yesterday whilst finishing my “Amigos” remix with Jacob, he showed me this:
It reminded me that Bauhaus is indeed my favorite band ever and why. Also that I was the singer for Bauhaus for a few minutes in DC once. I like to call it that cuz it’s funny but really all I did was sing “Bela Lugosi’s Dead” with Daniel, Kevin and David J. which is pretty much the same as when sammy hagar sang for van halen but that we were smart enough to limit it to one song. Ever.
Sorry for the cheap shot, Sammy, but it was just right there, ya know.
This next clip is dark, sweet and campy and basically everything I love about old film. the lighting is so beautiful and the story is obviously very sad. Marlene just looks amazing. She actually did have Bette Davis Eyes back when they called them “bedroom eyes”.
Now here’s a quick look at Marlene Dietrich, my favorite female archetype ever:
Incidentally she is also my favorite singer from the 20’s / 30’s era largely because she has a low voice that never gets shrill as many of those old recordings do. btw the movie is called Dishonored.
